Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Prof. Kirsopp Lake in his monumental edition of the Codex Sinaiticus Petropolitanus (Oxford, 1911) has pointed out (p. xi.) that in eight of the nine places where Ἰσραηλείτης occurs in the NT the Cod. Sinaiticus spells it ΙΣΔΡΑΗΛΕΙΤΗΣ, while in the Cod. Vaticanus it appears in the form ΙΣΤΡΑΗΛΕΙΤΗΣ. WH have used this fact to support their theory of a Western provenance for one or both of these MSS., but, as Lake goes on to show, their argument has lost its force through the discovery of the same spelling in Egypt. He cites by way of example for Ἰστραήλ the great magical P Par 574, and for Ἰσδραήλ a Jewish inscr. published in Bull. Soc. Alex. xi. (1909), p. 326 (= Preisigke 617 Ἰσ ]δ ̣ρ ̣αήλ) : add P Lond 46.111 (iv/A.D.) (= I. p. 68) Ἰστραήλ.
